The Dawson County High School girls’ varsity basketball team moved to 3–0 on the season and claimed first place in the Tiger Tipoff Classic with 48–33 victory over the South Forsyth War Eagles on Nov. 20. Led by Sophie Rosin, the South Forsyth High School War Eagles were successful in slowing the pace of the game early and outscored the Tigers 12–9 in the first period. The second period proved to be the difference as the Lady Tigers took control of the game behind strong defensive performances from junior Marlie Townley and senior Anna Lowe, who dominated the lane and forced multiple turnovers. Senior Kaylee Sticker led the way on offense with 10 of her 24 points on night to give the Tigers a commanding 31–14 lead at the half.
